Navajo Sheep Shearing: A Fading Art
An Arizona farmer is fighting to preserve the ancient Navajo customs of sheep shearing. Arnold Clifford doesn't rely on electric shearers for his wool, but the wisdom of his ancestors, as he explains in this BBC video.
He is trying to keep the shearing skills he learned from his elders alive. By donating his wool to weavers he is also helping that ancient Navajo tradition thrive today.
